1909 Cadillac First Start in 79 Years
This 1909 Cadillac was stripped down into a speed car, raced and then parked in 1934. I was acquired in the early 1960's for restoration. The restoration was put on hold for many years and then re-started a few years ago. After multple checks of the ignition and timing we finally achieved the first start on July 28, 2012. There is still more to do to tune the engine and sort it out for driving later this year. The spray on the first try happened when we left the primer cups open. It runs better with them closed. And the owner did make it a bit easier by adding an electric starter to the car. For more of the story see the HCCA Gazette, May - June 2009. To see how things turned out, see the related video, 1909 Cadillac first drive at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qEy0KagVrIw

The first car ever running live! The Benz Motorwagen (1885)
This is rare footage of the world's first car's engine igniting & running. From Wikipedia: After developing a successful gas-powered two-stroke piston engine in 1873, Karl Benz focused on developing a motorized vehicle. His Patent Motorwagen (or Motor Car), introduced in 1886, is widely regarded as the first purpose-built automobile, that is a vehicle designed from the ground up to be motorized. Benz unveiled it officially on July 3, 1886 on the Ringstraße in Mannheim, Germany. The vehicle was patented with German patent number 37435, which Benz applied for on January 29, 1886.

GMC CCW First Start in Decades
9-28-10 Another rig I picked up on craigslist for a song and a dance. The engine was rusted stuck when I got the truck (I pickled it with diesel fuel, reason for smoke). After running for an hour the engine cleared up. #4 cylinder must have a stuck valve still, as its missing and you can hear a pushrod tapping the side cover. This truck is a CCW not CCKW, it has no front drive differential. That is a puddle of garden hose water under the truck, (the truck was missing a freeze plug.

1919 Buick First start since 1952
This is the first startup of this 1919 buick six roadster that had been sitting in a barn in ohio since 1952. It was parked there with a bad differential. My boss bought it on Ebay and i gently disassembled the engine, cleaned out the 50+ year old oil, freed up the piston rings and put it back together. I had to substitute a newer coil to get a strong spark and had manually filled the float bowl of the carburetor. No fuel pump was hooked up or water in the engine hence the short run time. This is a very cool early overhead valve engine with an aluminum crankcase,cast iron cylinder block, roller tappets, exposed valvetrain, zero gap piston rings, and electric start. This car had about 14,000 miles on the odometer. Enjoy the video! Check out my other video/slide show for engine disassembly pictures.

How to Start a Yamaha after it's been left for years in the garden
Here we have a 1985 Yamaha FZ750. It is the very rare 2GH model as ridden by Eddie Lawson in the 1986 Daytona 200 to victory with full livery by Troy Lee Designs. Sadly it has been left for years outside in a garden with the sea air/rain on it with nothing but a sheet over it. I have removed the petrol tank to access the fuel supply and have repaired some of the faulty wiring which probably was the cause of this superbikes demise. I am now going to completely strip the bike down and restore her to her former glory. BAD LANGUAGE while I welcome constructive comments, I will not tolerate foul language, swear words and any racist or other comments which may be deemed offensive to some people If you make any such comments that comment will be removed and you will be reported to YouTube my channel is viewed by young and old alike, please bear this in mind. Kind Regards, John OHanlon.
